U.S. Making Plans To Sail Warship Into Black Sea

"We will not, however, comment on the nature of our diplomatic correspondence with the Government of Turkey", reported the cable network, quoting a State Department spokesman.

The US has begun making the necessary preparations to sail a warship into the Black Sea, a move that comes amid heightened tensions in the region following Russia's seizure of Ukrainian ships and detention of Ukrainian sailors. "We reserve the right to operate freely in accordance with worldwide laws and norms", he added.

Ukraine's Foreign Ministry has appealed to the Budapest Memorandum guarantor countries (the United States, the United Kingdom and Russia) for urgent consultations over the Kerch Strait standoff.

A spokesman told CNN Wednesday that Moscow lays claim to areas that far exceed the 12 miles from the Russian coastline that is guaranteed by worldwide law.

In a statement by the Embassy of Ukraine in Nigeria, Mykola Yaremchuk, first secretary of the Embassy of Ukraine said the attack on the ships was carried out during a sea crossing from the port of Odessa to the port of Mariupol, in accordance with the provisions of all effective multilateral and bilateral worldwide treaties and navigation rules.

The possible move comes in response to a naval incident in the Kerch Strait on November 25 when three Ukrainian Navy ships entered Russian territorial waters in violation of worldwide law.

Concerned about an outright invasion by Russia, Ukrainian reserve units have been called up while the president, Petro Poroshenko, declared 30 days of marshal law that will bar Russian males from entering the country.

According to CNN, the last USA ship to enter the Black Sea was the fast transport ship USNS Carson City in October.
